a fabulous weekend


This weekend the three of us spent a wonderful weekend in the capital city of this amazing province of ours...Victoria. We had the pleasure of being hosted by our lovely friends, Mary and Don.


We shared great conversation, lots of m-m-m nummy food, a little geocaching (their first time) and to top it off, a performance of Cirque du Soleil's Saltimanco.


I find myself captivated by each Cirque experience and this one did not disappoint. The athleticism, the artistry and the humour all woven together by a signature cirque soundtrack. In this performance, the live band was situated at the back of the stage on risers and played a prominent part in the entire show.


There was a particularly amusing clown that made the show. He vocalized all these terrific sound effects during several acts. The best one was when he pulled a fellow from the audience who really got into his role. He was such a good sport; going along with everything that was asked of him...I should say mime'ed of him. Just hillarious. The two of them had the audience in stitches. I couldn't stop laughing.


A very relaxing and throughly enjoyable way to spend the weekend.

Thank you, Mary and Don for everything!!

Oooh, I'm so glad you enjoyed the show, Deb! But then I'm not surprised... I'm right there with you, too. I adore everything that Cirque does. Hugs, Shari

I haven't seen a Cirque show live, but it sounds like I need to, Deb. Glad you had a good time!
